 August 10, 2018: A Dalit youth was killed and several others injured in clashes between Rajputs and Dalits over some Dalits watching a Kanwariya procession in a Meerut village on Thursday, police said.

Members of the Rajput community allegedly took offence to the Dalits watching a Kanwariya procession.

Clashes between members of the two castes were also reported from another Meerut village on Thursday.

Police said three Rajput men have been arrested for the alleged murder of Dalit youth, Rohit (19), who succumbed to his injuries during treatment.

Heavy force has been deployed to prevent further clashes and senior officials are camping in the affected villages.

At least six persons from both the sides were injured. “We are trying to identify others who were involved in the violence,” said Rajesh Kumar, SP (rural).

The first incident took place in Uldepur village, under Ganga Nagar police station on Thursday morning when Dalits and Rajputs clashed after a group of Rajput youths allegedly beat up three Dalit youths who had gone to see a Kanwar procession on Wednesday night.
